Rumen acidosis is a metabolic disease of cattle. Like most metabolic diseases it is important to remember that for every cow that shows clinical signs, there will be several more which are affected sub-clinically. Acidosis is said to occur when the pH of the rumen falls to less than 5.5 (normal is 6.5 to 7.0).
The fall in pH has two effects. Firstly, the rumen stops moving, becoming atonic and this depresses appetite and production. Secondly, the change in acidity changes the rumen flora, with acid-producing bacteria taking over. They produce more acid, making the acidosis worse. Biobuffer works preventing the effects of acidosis both in its clinical and subclinical form. The main effects are improving feed intake, milk production and fat%.
